The 36-year-old Portuguese superstar has been linked with Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester City, Manchester United and Real Madrid.

Ronaldo broke his silence on social media last week and stressed that he was “focused” on his work amid rumours linking him with a sensational return to Madrid.

However, the five-time Ballon d'Or winner’s Juventus future was plunged into further doubt after he was on the bench for his side’s 2-2 draw with Udinese on Sunday.

According to initial reports, Ronaldo had made a ‘precise request’ for Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri to not start him.

Now, Sportitalia CEO Michele Crisciello claims that the Portugal captain’s “black and white” stint is over at Juventus and Tottenham could be a “possible destination” for him.

“Since he came back we have said it, there is a clear will on the part of Max Allegri not wanting to start again with Ronaldo and vice versa,” he said.

“The cycle of CR7 in black and white is over, confirmation has arrived in Udine. Even the [sic] Tottenham [is a] possible destination.”

Tottenham are keen to reinforce their attacking options amid the uncertainty surrounding wantaway striker Harry Kane, who has been linked with City this summer.

However, a move to the London club would be unlikely for Ronaldo considering Spurs missed out on Champions League football for the current season.

Speaking after Juventus’ draw, Allegri revealed that he told the former United star that he would be on the bench ahead of the Udinese clash.

The Juventus head coach told DAZN: “Ronaldo is feeling well. I had talked to him before the game, telling him he would start on the bench.

“He made himself available, he did well when he entered the pitch.”
